[mp3com-artist]Giant Sand[/mp3com-artist] is now more giant-er, which brought Howe Gelb to the only possible conclusion: rename the band Giant Giant Sand. Together, they've released the album Tucson, and we've got a fantastic track from it for you. Gelb brought back six Danish musicians from the original Giant Sand and fused them with six new artists of Mexican-American heritage, who have a bit of a cumbia thing pulsing threw their veins. What does this combination sound like? Exactly what you just imagined. Tucson is a "country rock opera" that tells the story of a guy heading from Tuscon down towards Mexico and encapsulates all the things that could go wrong and right along the way. You can grab a free download of the track "Detained" below: [mp3com-download url="giantgiantsand-detained.mp3" artist="Giant Giant Sand" song="Detained" email="none" year="2012" label="Fire Records"/] It also worth pointing out, last weekend, Giant Giant Sand was joined by [mp3com-artist]John Paul Jones[/mp3com-artist], on mandolin, at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass in San Francisco. Just throwing that out there... Tucson is available now, and a deluxe addition will be released in November.
